AGHADE LODGE, TULLOW, COUNTY CARLOW, IRELAND An elegant late 19th century country house enjoying a picturesque setting on the banks of the river Slaney. Aghade Lodge is offered for sale on some 5 acres [2 hectares] that includes glorious gardens surrounding the house with a walled garden paddock, small wood, frontage onto the river Slaney with single-bank fishing and a magical river island with barbeque terrace and linking bridge. There are splendid mature shrubs and trees within the grounds. The house extends to about 5,500 square feet or 510 square metres of accommodation and offers ample natural light from large windows and generous sized rooms and provides 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Ancillary accommodation on the property extends to some 1,822 square feet or 169 square metres of accommodation and provides a further 6 bedrooms. Inside there is much to celebrate with many original features including decorative ceiling plasterwork, fine timberwork in window shuttering, panelled doors and detailed architraves, deep skirting boards and wide flooring boards. The ground floor of this magnificent house includes a porch, drawing room, library, dining room, cloak room, kitchen, laundry room and cosy family room, while upstairs a generous landing is lit from a glazed atrium which leads to six generous bedrooms, two bathrooms and two shower rooms, a linen room and a games room. Polished timber floors, carved chimney pieces and large bow windows in the drawing room and master bedroom emphasise the tremendous river views. The kitchen, formerly the Butler’s Pantry is a country kitchen style and has a good range of fitted timber cupboards and the requisite AGA cooking range, while the cosy family room has a brick fireplace with a solid fuel stove. Upstairs the master bedroom faces south and west and has a delightful coved ceiling and large bow window overlooking the gardens and river. A second bedroom overlooks the walled garden and contains an open fireplace while three of the bedrooms have pedestal wash-hand basins. A quadrangular courtyard, positioned to the rear of the house, provides good parking and has access to the rear hall, kitchen and laundry room and two apartments, one with three bedrooms and one with one bedroom. A first floor apartment has two bedrooms. The apartments have been variously used for visiting guests, short-terms lets and fishing lets over the years. The walled garden faces south and west and provides a safe enclosed garden for children. The outline of a lawn tennis court is still evident and the lawn in front of the house is ideal for croquet or could be fenced for a grazing paddock. There is a possibility to separately purchase additional lands and river frontage with fishing. Aside from the fishing amenity afforded directly on the owned stretch of the river Slaney, a noted Salmon and Trout river, there is much on offer in the area. The scenic and renowned Wicklow Way walking route can be accessed in nearby Clonegal village. The Mount Wolseley Golf and Country Club Hotel has a leisure centre and spa in nearby Tullow town. Good local eateries and restaurants include The Lord Bagenal Inn in Leighlinbridge village, The Step House Hotel in Borris town and the Sha-Roe Bistro Restaurant in Clonegal village. There are good shopping facilities in nearby Tullow with supermarket grocery stores, pharmacies, petrol stations and even a bespoke tailor. There are primary schools in nearby Tullow town and Ballon village and secondary schools in Tullow and Bunclody. The beaches of Courtown and Curracloe are less than an hour’s drive away. The M9 Dublin to Waterford trunk road is accessible at Junction 5 some 5 miles from Aghade Lodge with Dublin Airport an approximately 1 hr and 20 minute drive.
